User's roles are stored in an encrypted browser cookie - Can it be changed ?

Hello All

from here: https://www.mojoportal.com/docs/roles-permissions

"You can create as many roles as you'd like, but each user should be in no more than a handful of roles. A user's roles are stored in an encrypted browser cookie, and a cookie can only hold so much data. So if a user is a member of too many roles it can overflow the capacity of the cookie."

In my case, there will be many roles for every user.

Is there an easy way to change the storage from the browser to let say Session?

Thank you.

Hi Serge,

We've never actually run into any problems with this. The role provider doesn't use sessions, just cookies. We'll take a look at it though and see if we can make some adjustments. Before we do that though, we'll do some use case testing to see how many roles we can add a user to before things go haywire. 

Thanks,
Joe
